SMSP Header

Are the SMSP Header legal in California? Because I heard you need a stamped number for all the add ons on my car. So does the SMSP come with a stamp number? This is what I heard, so correct me if im wrong.

Re: SMSP Header

No stamp usually means off road use only, i'd look into a street legal one

Re: SMSP Header

I would contact bisimoto if you don't mind spending around $800 on one.
He is out of cali so he might be doing the best he can to keep them legal by emissions standards.

Re: SMSP Header

what you heard about the e.o. number is correct. so technically, no, the smsp header is not legal in cali. if you can get it to pass the sniffer, weld a thingamajig on to it so you can put the stock heat shield on it before you go to the station. i'm not about to spend $1k to see if i'll pass the sniffer, that's why i haven't gotten one yet.

ok well thanks guys... I really like the way the SMSP header looks and im sure it gives great hp gains. Im also willing to spend 1K soooo idk. I guess ill have to see what i can do for it to pass the "sniffer" lol but thanks a lot guys.

so what good headers are legal in cali??? i dont want a DC or Megan. Im talking about SMSP, RMF or any header of that type.

Not really anything good that will keep your car legal to california's standard.
At least to my knowledge. I'm just saying call that number and ask them.

Re: SMSP Header

Bisi headers are also racing headers, meaning no they won't be CA CARB legal.

Re: SMSP Header

Nothing good is legal in California. Your best bet is probably going to be welding heat shield tabs and mounting the heat shield on an SMSP, a Bisi 4-1 header isn't going to be able to pull that off.

Re: SMSP Header

Have to be the same diameter as stock to be CARB legal, no? So basically anything legal will be about the same as stock performance wise.

Could probably have some kind of clip made up so you could fit the heat shield without welding to it. Probably want to have someone test fit first to see if it will fit over a larger diameter 4-2-1 or not.

Since our headers are designed to make as much power as possible, we could not do this and stay CARB legal.

If you are looking for a header that is going to give you the most power, Then the Bisimoto header is for you

Re: SMSP Header

Not CARB legal and will fail visual inspection in California. I have a Mugen header and that is not legal either. When I go back to California, I am making a heatshield that looks like the stock one to cover it up.
